Earth Rotation from Galileo Imagery: 3600 x Real-Time


Published 9/1/1998


This animation is one in a series created to show an accurate representation of the Earth's rotation at different temporal resolutions. The animation is created from images taken by the Galileo spacecraft during a close pass of the Earth on December 11-12, 1990. The animations range from real-time, in which no rotation can be perceived, to 3600 times real-time, in which both the Earth's rotation and cloud motion can bee seen. The series also includes an animation in which the Earth's rotation has been 'halted' so that cloud motion is easier to see and an animation showing the specific amount of rotation that takes place in three minutes. Note: An animation of the Earths rotation from Galileo imagery at 3600 times real-time. The timer indicates hours and minutes of elapsed time. The Earths rotation is obvious, and cloud motion is perceptible. Animator: Horace Mitchell (NASA/GSFC). Scientist: Doug Norton (NASA/HQ). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: Galileo/Solid-State Imaging Camera.
